Demonia De La Enfermedad (Larsson Appreciation remix) - (3:12) 100 BPM
Cologne's vinyl obsessed (he owns a record shop) Ernest Drake, aka DJ Phoney, is also obsessed by something else; Horror films. "Demonia De La Enfermedad" is his labour of love - the soundtrack to a Giallo slasher that never was. It's authentic too, with the fuzzy bass and clanging psyche-rock riffs conjuring up images of a million leather gloved hands, shadowy faces, flashing blades and (blood red) glossy-lipped screams. Larsson Appreciation also provides a sympathetic remix, adding a bit more of a breakbeat and some mantra-like vocals.
Given that Italian funk-breaks duo Skeewiff have been plugging away for some 15 years, a 'best of' is definitely in order. For the uninitiated (or even those who lost track of their output years ago), Greatest Wiffs offers an excellent summary of their career to date. Their sound - a fun, funky an unfussy fusion of floor-friendly breakbeats, kitsch '60s easy listening samples (see the triumphant "Soul Bossanova"), horn-totin' soul, heavy funk and Blaxpolitation attitude - is unfussy and joyous, unconcerned with the vagaries of fashion. As a result, Greatest Wiffs is a good old-fashioned blast of party-starting fun.
